Hi yea,
I am using the Smart Mailer from DMXzone.com, I have selected the option in it to send my emails html formated. when I receive the email though it is all muddled up.  where as if I set it as text I only see the table and cell tags displayed as text.

has any one here used the smart mailer, and if so did you successfully send a html formatted email.

Hi Kenny,

I don't use Outlook (never have, never will) so I don't know why the problem is occurring or how to fix it.  I suggest you test the mail output by installing Thunderbird and opening a Yahoo, Hotmail, and Gmail accounts.  If only Outlook is having the problem, then you at least know the behavior is working...

Hi thatelvis

Haven't had any experience with Smart Mailer very expensive for alot scripts that are free, I'm not sure if you want to try another script, but I use soupermail, it also uses templates one in plain text the other in html, these can be redirected to the sender, the recipient or both, it also includes a multitude of other options, it's also free, I've used it on all of our clients and it works great.
